KALISPELL, MT - Two freshman football players from Glacier High School face charges in connection to an alleged hazing incident on a school bus. The Kalispell Police Department says one of the juvenile faces sexual assault charges while another is charged with accountability to sexual assault.
The incident happened when the Glacier High freshman football team returned from a road game to Missoula on September 12th. School administrators identified eight players as possible victims and six players as possible suspects.
Glacier High School administrators disciplined those directly responsible by suspending them and kicking them off the team. Kalispell police then conducted their own investigation by interviewing all of the victims, their families, witnesses and suspects.
The two charged juveniles face the charges in Flathead County Youth Court.
